I have reviewed your records.

You have received excellent care and seem to be doing as well as can be expected at this point.

In addition to the glaucoma and subluxated lens you also had a large full thickness macular hole.

I see where they recommended a vitrectomy with gas/fluid exchange, ILM peel, endolaser and possibly silicone oil placement.

Putting in silicone oil with your subluxated lens and glaucoma ball valve implant might be problematic. The retina doc may want to have your lens removed and a PCIOL either places in what remains of the capsular bag (if it is stable enough) or sewn in place.

As you have already been told your prognosis for ending up with more than "getting around" vision in that eye is very guarded.

So. What is the take home message?

Keep doing what you are doing with the ophthalmologists you are working with. You are getting very good care.

Does this make sense to you?
